My Verdict
Splashup is a nice online service and software.

  1. Although I know very little in photo editing, the tools incorporated seems to me quite sufficient.
  2. Splashup Light is lightweight and similarly nice tool. It’s good that Splashup cares for your Social Networking Life and have kept options for using those while opening and closing images online.
  3. More image formats are needed during output of an image.
  4. The webpage seems to have been backdated but still works very well.
  5. None of the contact emails of Splashup works.
Indeed Splashup is a nice service and software. Its worth some of your time !!
